My history.... Started loosing hair in my mid 20s. Used minox sporadically up until I turned 30 then jumped on Fin. Lost hair along the hairline to about NW2.5 level before I started fin. In hindsight it was stupid - I waited too long. Should have started fin at the first sign of hairloss.

Anyway fin stabilised by hairloss for the last 8 years. I have great coverage in the crown but my hairline is receded to about NW2.5-3. A consequence of waiting too long before starting fin.

Over the last 2 months I've started shedding terribly, Bumped up fin to 2 mg per day but that hasn't helped so have decided to add RU to the regimen in the last 2 weeks. RU seems to be working as my shed has slowed.

This is how I'm mixing it up...

- 100mg of RU into shot glass.
- 2.5 mls of alcohol (95%)
- 1.5 ml of dipropylene glycol.

Mix until solution is clear and then apply to hairline and crown using eye dropper. Rub in and leave in for atleast 2 hours before showering. If possible I leave it in over night.

Twoquestions...
1. Is dipropylene glycol a good substitute for PG? I can't tolerate PG due to skin inflammation. I have tried glycerin but it is too greasy.
2. What's the minimum amount of time I should leave RU on the scalp before washing hair?

-------------------------
1.25mg Fin daily
Minox foam or liquid intermittently
Nizoral shampoo every 2-3 days
----------------
We need something better than Fin approved that targets the scalp only.
We need much better hair growth stimulants.

thats way too much RU

10mg to 30mg a day should be the ballpark

-------------------------
FIN 98~04
DUT 04~08
DUT + Flutamide & Fluridil ~08
DUT + RU ~09
RU only (20mg to 400mg/d 09~11)
RU+Minox 11~15
RU 20 mg/d (in 6ml Neogenic)
Now:
Adenogen
CB 03-01 25mg/d in 6ml Neo

el_dut,

Are you back on CB again? Thought you switched from RU-CB-RU?

Cheers!

Thanks a lot for your answer. I have being using Finasteride ( then Dutasteride, since 2002 ) since 1998 ( none stop ) . Even had a daughter on it . During the last year my libido drop a lot, also my test level ( I am 39 , could be coincidence ) , but I am looking for alternatives .

I have a couple of questions, if you can answer any of it , I will really appreciate it. 1) Do you suffer from any side effect on RU ?
2)What you think that should be a save % to start ( thinking to replace the dutasteride, one caps per day ) ?
3) Is still anagenic ( and their generic sites ) the best supplier ?
4)I am reading a lot that is not an stable drug, do you think that it could be "*****ed" with the long shipment ?
5) I am using Minoxidil ( liquid version , 5 % , at night ) . Do you think it should be a good idea to simple mix it with the minoxidil ( without extra vehicle ) ?

Thanks !!!!!!!!!!

El Dut

Iv been fighting hair loss for over 15 years now

i have to take 1mg of fin per day and ru

i tired reducing my RU to 50mg and then 30mg daily but it didnt work... the only thing that can seem to keep my hair loss at bay is 100mg ru daily with 1mg of fin per day

my labido suffers as a result tho

-------------------------
1 mg propecia every day
100mgRU mixed in with Neo everyday
Minox every morning

Libido is fine


when you say your libido is 'fine'

does this mean its the same as when your not on the drugs or its lower than normal but still ok?

It's lower but I know how to control it

Since my GF comes over on week ends I don't use ru the night before and that's enough for a good libido
Ru has a very short serum life

I have been doing this for almost 10 years now

Watch for morning woods these are good indications of hormonal related libido changes


On fin it takes time for 5ar to replenish so the effects take longer to dissapeared

I agree morning wood is the main indicator of how the libido is doing

el dut have u ever thought about the long term effects of taking a drug like RU.. i mean has anyone on here suffered a serious illness as a result? cancer or something like that? iv been using it heavy now (as in 50 to 100mg a day) for close to 5 years and think about the long term consequences all the time

i dont have issues after 10 years but yes it could be a concern over time

use the least amount you need. people tend to use way too much

you really dont nedd 50mg I use 15mg EOD its enough, and make sure you also use STEMOX this helps overall over time and help reduce the RU amount required

a bunch of guys are trying topicals that act on different angles. guys that got sides with ru. a drug called seti is a popular one. meant to avoid the whole dht thing

plus a load of other random shit people are trying after getting sides with fin/ru

i personally had excellent regrowth with fin but awful sides. im not interested in trying anything like ru instead because of this. nothing too strong. i am thinking of trying fluridil.

after all these years, how would you rate the drug now? i know it had a lot of noise on the forums 10 years ago. would you still recommend it?

i have quite aggressive hairloss. will be nw7 cueball in 10/15 years. the pattern is there now. am currently around nw4ish at 30. but would like to use SOMETHING to help slow it down. along with minoxidil.

its taken me 13/14 years to reach nw4 so its not super super aggressive. i feel like maybe these more less potent products could help me somewhat

i will look into it but im very hesitant using anything *****ing with my hormones after my experience with fin

what do you think about fluridl, is there still a place for this product? or is it simply too weak

fluridil is too weak

ru or cb do not affect hormones only the receptor

ok but you still can get similar sides like low libido and brain fog etc. from what ive seen reported anyway.

i would rather not experience those things again

cheers though
